A roper’s noseband tie-down selection is as critical as his bit when communicating with the horse. The noseband and tie-down strap are not intended to restrict movement but to help the horse balance back on his haunches to rate and handle steers more efficiently. When a horse is traveling on his front end and leaning on the noseband, the horse is unable to make adjustments in balance or stride, and the bit feels ineffective. Having the proper noseband will help the horse move more collected. The pressure from the noseband with the correct tie-down length will assist the rider and help move the horse’s center of gravity towards his back end. Just as there are different bits to fit each horse’s needs and situations, there are different nosebands with varying severities. Same as a more severe bit, when a horse leans onto a more severe noseband, the pressure is uncomfortable on the horse and he is more apt to give to the pressure.
NRS has developed a series of nosebands that vary from mild to severe (1-6). The basic principle is the same as with bits. The wider and smoother the surface that is placed against the horse, the less severe the pressure. The rougher, stiffer and skinnier the noseband, the more pressure it places on your horse. The more severe nosebands (4-6) should not be used all the time. They should be used to sensitize and tune-up your horse and then go back to a noseband in the 1-3 range. This will keep your horse sharp. If you are having trouble communicating with your horse, try changing nosebands before changing your bit, and notice the difference.
The NRS Tack 1-1/8" Noseband With Harness Hanger is considered a 1.
In 2014 We began our quest to offer quality tack at an honest price. The Amish family that builds all of our NRS Tack does just that methodically handcrafting each items. How do we do this? On our double stitched headstalls we precisely count the stitches per inch to make sure the leather lays flat, yet maintains its integrity and strength. Or that we dip our split reins in oil for just the right amount of seconds, to ensure the correct feel; broke-in right from the start. We've built a partnership that works in perfect tandem. Our craftsmen are second and third generation leather makers with a passion for top-quality materials that create a top-quality piece of tack! Each and every piece we sell passses through no less than 10 hands from the first cut to the final rubbing of the edges. We take pride in evaluating each peice of tack we design. Having the right amount of holes in a headstall allows customers to use it on several horses; with the right fit for each of them. Every pair of split reins we sell are hand cut side by side and stay together throughout the whole finishing process so that they both have the same weight and feel on the horse. From flank cinches, headstalls, and breast collars to curb straps, we have developed tack for cowboys in or out of the arena, Made in the United Stats using almost exclusively Hermann Oak Leather out of St. Louis, Missouri.
